The book contains excellent general reference material for any Chemical Engineer.

The 8th edition has provided excellent updates on subjects that were lagging behind the times in the previous editions.
Glenn Shiveler
Not in this issue as you cannot enlarge the view because of the blur in the tables.

I have an older print version. It is indispensable but it weighs 20#.
Living on the road without it, I thought I'd get the Kindle version and have it in my lap top.
But, many illustrations (especially those of printed tables) are presented at too low a resolution to read easily on a 1,900 x 1080 monitor.

Because of this, the Kindle book fails to transmit to the reader significant parts of the information the authors worked so hard to present.

I was given a refund and I appreciate that.... but I'd rather have the book in a form that works.

Note to the Publisher: Fix the problem, issue a statement that you have done so, & I'll buy the book again

Perry's has improved since the 6th edition of the mid-80's. The eighth edition does what it is supposed to do: provide a broad coverage of our sprawling profession. I like it that it provides comparison tables for equipment allowing an engineer to identify which unit operation works best for a given material or operating conditions. Also, the superior graphics have returned. There has been some re-shuffling of sections and the number of pages have grown substantially to cover such new topics as security and inherently safe design in Process Safety and solids handling. These topics were ignored in previous editions. The economics section has been expunged from the eighth; this is sad since so many of my peers have forgotten the importance of this section to our profession.

This version of Perry's has returned to my side shell. The 6th serves as a stop in my basement bookshelf. The 4th remains on the main shelf.

As a practicing ChemE, I have used the hardcopy for years. I thought this was a great addition to my IPAD, but it is not. If you wish to read any of the tables, they are almost impossible to dicipher. The table data is the most useful in Perry's. Not in this issue as you cannot enlarge the view because of the blur in the tables. I would have not bought this if I had tried it.
Sorry, my old Perry's will still travel with me.

I saw a few other reviews that gave poor marks for the informative tables being reduced to very small ( and unreadable ) images, but purchased this edition anyway. That was a big mistake. The print edition is comparable in price and infinitely more useful. I had seen PDFs floating around and assumed that the Kindle edition would be of comparable quality, but legal. IT IS NOT.

This edition also seems to lack matching page references to the print edition, which makes it worth even less as it cannot be as efficiently used to follow references from other texts.

DO NOT BUY. The tables that you are buying this access are not usable.

Book was shipped on time and given for christmas. The kid I sent off to college came back a some type of super human genius who actually understands what is in this book.

As for me, I don't really have a clue, but he said he needed it.

Excellent book as always, but the utility is greatly diminished by the fact that all of the tables are unusable. Even on PC they are too small and blurred to be read or used. It is so bad, I can almost believe it was done on purpose or through criminal negligence. If you actually need data - don't buy this book.

This book contains everything plus more I have learned during my undergraduate career. This is the biggest book I have ever owned and probably the only book I needed for my school years. In this book you will find everything from controls processes to thermodynamics. If you need to look up anything related to chemical engineering quickly turn to the index and 90% of the time you will be able to find it. The explanation of theories and equations aren't as in depth as a textbook which are dedicated to that specific topics. Get this book to supplement other books it is definitely worth the price!

One of the most usefull books in Chemical Engineer! Perry's used from beginning to the end of the course. I purchased it from Amazon and despite the flight to Brazil, it came to me in perfect conditions! For international customers, I fully recommend buying it at Amazon.com
